In the last blog post, we’ve discussed these 3 myths that held us back from exercising. We’ve witnessed first-hand how it delimit us from formulating an effective workout regimen.
Sure, exercising is a difficult task. Even more so, if you need to stick with it for a couple of days every week. But, guess what? It’s only difficult if you think about it as a undesirable activity. So instead of thinking how exercise is exhausting your body, stop thinking about it and: JUST. DO. IT.
After a few weeks of working out, you’ll find yourself yearning to exercise without realizing it. Your body will gradually adapt to this new routine until it develops into a habit.
Exercising becomes easier if you have someone else checking up and exercising with you. After all, you wouldn’t want to break your promise and miss your appointment when your friend is waiting for you to show up on her doorstep, right? So, get up and start moving!
Having an accountable partner or support group will inspire you to keep moving forward to reach your goal. They will be there to lift you up when you’re feeling down and to remind you why living a healthy lifestyle is worth all the sacrifice you’ve made. Don’t give up! You’ve already come this far!
Playing a game is never boring or exhausting for most of us, so why don’t you treat exercise like one? In fact, the term “exergaming” was invented for this unique but exciting activity.
One example of a fun exergaming is called Just Dance Video Game. It lets you hit a certain goal just by moving your body.You’re not only going to break some sweat and lose fats in the process, but you’ll have fun, that’s for sure.
4. Plug in your Earphones
There’s nothing more enjoyable than to listen to music when exercising. So start creating your perfect playlist as you start your morning workout. Or if you’re not fond of music, you can opt to listen to an audiobook and time flies by before you realize it.
Now that you’re finished reading this blog post, you’re in for our mini-game! This game is incredibly easy. You noticed how we’re still lacking one tip? Where’s the fifth tip, you say? That’s where you come in! Complete this blog post by posting your tip below. We can’t wait to hear from you.
Most of us undoubtedly frown in disgust whenever we hear the term exercise. We often see it like it’s some sort of punishment because we’re out of shape. You need to beat yourself into working out because you indulge yourself with unhealthy food cravings. You need to push yourself to the limit in order to lose weight to become acceptable to society. This kind of mindset has been instilled in our mind causing us to have a hostile attitude towards exercising.
The truth is, exercising should never be tiring and exhausting. It’s supposed to be enjoyable and fulfilling. You should never feel miserable or be obliged to do it just for the sake of losing weight. How do we encourage ourselves to have a positive attitude when it comes to exercising?
This certainly tops the list of our workout mistakes. While Cardio offers a lot of health benefits and goodness to our body, cardio is only one part of exercising. Cardio can only improve one section in our body. It can help improve our speed, cardiovascular endurance. But it cannot improve our strength and bone density.
Instead, what we need is a mix of exercise. Just like in eating, we need to mix our exercise to address our body’s specific needs.
That’s why fast metabolism diet uses mixed exercises that you need to do every phase. This varying workout regimen will help improve different sections in your body in order to lose weight. You won’t need to push yourself doing cardio 5-6 times a week just to lose weight.
This is actually in relation to number 1. We’re all led to believe that cardio is the only way to exercise and lose weight. And when we talk about cardio, the only thing that comes to our mind is running. We need to run like crazy until we’re out of breath to lose some weight. We often feel miserable when we’re panting like crazy, pushing ourselves to move, run harder, only to find out we’re left behind in a race while our friends are running swiftly. Frustrating isn’t it?
Why do you allow yourself to suffer like that? If you don’t like running, then don’t do it. Doing something you don’t love and enjoy will only stress you out. And remember? When you’re stressed, your body will withhold those fats rather than losing them! Wasting all your efforts in vain!
Instead of running, you can do other cardio exercises such as dancing, brisk walking, hiking, etc. The same as with strength-training and stress-reducing activities in Phase 2 and 3. The most important thing is to get your body moving shed those pesky pounds off your body.
Just like in yo-yo dieting, we’ve also had our fair share of yo-yo exercising moments. That incredible motivation we have before we start hitting the gym. Then after a 30-minute session of intense workout, you feel sore, and beyond exhausted. That’s when your motivation to keep going starts to diminish. Until you found yourself . . . dang! Quitting on exercising and starting this horrid cycle again for the nth time.
If you feel like quitting, remind yourself again why you’re doing this. You’re doing this to lose weight and be healthy. And of course, don’t forget to pat your back for a job well done. You’ve come this far, every step you take is a process. Do you really want to stop when you’re so near to achieving your goal? I bet you wouldn’t want that.
So stop committing these workout mistakes. We recommend you to keep going and don’t give up until you reach your goal. In our next blog post, we’ll tackle some ways on how to make exercising more fun and enjoyable!
Winter is fast approaching. It might not be the most comfortable time of the year because of the cold weather and the snow, but you need not worry. Everyone can get through this yearly, so it’s time to ditch last season’s habit, bring out those all-too-familiar coats and jackets, and get ready to warm up this winter. Most people prefer to stay indoors but there are times we need to go out despite the freezing condition. These are easy tips to stay warm during this cold season.
Keep moving. The best thing to do is keep moving around and do lots of physical activity. Your winter clothes help by trapping heat, but it is your body that keeps you warm. Moving a lot and working out helps your body generate more heat that helps you warm up; whenever you take a break, make it short and avoid cooling off. People with less body mass and fat can tend to get cold easily.
Eat more healthy fats. The freezing weather makes your body cold and it will need more fuel to keep you warm. Fat is like a slow-burning fuel. Eating snacks with healthy fats such as almonds and walnuts keep your body going for the rest of the day.
Hydrate yourself. During winter, aside from the coldness, you could face dry conditions in your area. This means you’ll dehydrate faster without even realizing it. You can get dehydrated even if you’re not sweating. Bring a thermos with your hot drink or drink water frequently. You can flavor it with fruits like lemon or strawberries for flavor.
Wear the right clothes. This is not the season to use your favorite cotton shirt. Wear clothing that has wool or jackets with insulating synthetics. Layer-up your clothes to keep you warm. Woolen or fleece hats and thick woolen socks can also help your body warm up and keep you dry.
At night close your curtains. Your windows help in letting in more radiant energy in the morning from the sunlight that enters your house. However, at night your windows can let extremely cold air into your house. To prevent heat loss, close your curtains and lower your blinds before it gets dark. They serve as an extra protection from heat loss and add insulation to your home.
So with these easy tips, you’ll surely stay warm during winter and learn to find joy and comfort in this cold season
When we hear the term “clean eating”, our immediate thought would be it’s expensive. Going all-organic, processed-free foods sometimes hurts our pockets. While we do provide healthy budget tips to keep you healthy without overspending, we’re also aware that purchasing some foods may be more expensive than what you’re used to buying. So what can we do to lessen our budget while staying on the fast metabolism diet plan?
What’s more? These affordable foods are also FMD-compliant, so you can actually cut down your budget by purchasing them. Now, let’s head on to the list and start purchasing these economical foods!
Instead of using commercial mayonnaise, opt to use hummus instead. Hummus is a healthy fat that is rich in protein, fiber, and iron. These densely-packed nutrients help regulate your blood sugar and control fight your hunger cravings. It also has the same rich and creamy texture like mayo. Hummus is a great condiment in eating your sandwiches and wraps. You can check out mouthwatering hummus recipes here.
Bonus tip: If you really can’t give up the creamy goodness of mayonnaise, opt to purchase safflower mayonnaise instead.
I’ve heard you. We all love cheese, especially when served with pasta or our baking recipes. But cheese (at least the dairy ones), does our body more harm than good. Dairy products contribute to our weight-gain. But just because we’re prohibited in consuming dairy products doesn’t mean we need to omit cheese in our life too.
You can actually use a non-dairy cheese like cashew and almond cheese to create your favorite recipes. If not, you can use nutritional yeast. You can sprinkle it over your pasta recipes and you’ll find yourself tasting the same savory, cheesy bites the Parmesan cheese can offer you.
Tahini is a flavorful plant-based substitute that gives the same spice and taste on your bread. It’s also rich in protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Tahini is a good option if you want to have a new spin for your creamy based recipes.
We all love the creamy goodness of whipped cream whenever we make our pudding and dessert recipes. But sometimes we wonder what could be the substitute of whipped cream if dairy is not allowed? Good thing we have a healthy version of it!
Fast Metabolism Diet Heavy Whipped Cream – Phase 1 and 3
You can create our homemade whipped cream made with only natural ingredients! You can use it on Phase 1 and 3.
Fruits are rich in fructose by nature, but their fiber helps neutralize the spike in your blood sugar. Making it one of the healthiest and natural sweeteners out there. Fruits are also a good substitute for those who aren’t fond of stevia and xylitol. You can incorporate phase-specific fruits in your smoothie recipes.
